Tucson’s Birthday Family Activity

August 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Celebrate Tucson’s 242nd Birthday

at the Arizona History Museum

 

FAMILY ACTIVITY

Saturday, August 19       11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

 

Create seed balls using a mix of Old Town Tucson Wildflower Seeds.

Each participant will learn how to make 5 seed balls to take home.

 

PROGRAM FEE: $4 per person – General admission

                     $3 per person – AHS Members

 

Seed balls are ideal for Tucson’s arid climate.  All the nutrients needed to grow are inside the ball. The clay/soil mixture surrounding the seeds protects them from drying out, blowing away, or being eaten by birds. When the monsoons come, rains “melt” the seed balls, letting the seeds grow into beautiful wildflowers, like the ones growing in the early days of Tucson.  Let your seed balls dry in the sun for a couple of days. You can scatter them now, or wait until spring.
